Showered with LOVE!

Here are me & my 5 girls at my baby shower!
It was a blessed occasion with a HUGE turn out!
Hard to believe I was pregnant with the oldest 20 years ago! WOW!

DARLING rattle cupcakes made by my friends daughter

"8" chenille onesie hand made by my friend Jenni

3 hand made blankets
Striped blankie crocheted by my friend Sarah
Lavender knitted by my BFF Jen
John Deere quilt made by my friend Mindy

OH SO PRECIOUS booties knitted by my SIL!


God provided more than we could have ever asked for!

LADIES-I feel like dog DOO DOO!
This BP is NUTS!
That's why it's taken be so long to blog.
The shower took it all out of me girls!
I was emotional/crying through the ENTIRE shower.

I literally have a PANTING EXTRAVAGANZA just getting dressed!
If I do much more than lay on the couch, I'm really worn out!
It's been tough with my DH gone a week at a time.
I count the HOURS until he gets home.
I'm potty training my youngest and he insists I sit on the floor and
watch him pee every 5 minutes-UGH!
The potty trainee is WEARING MAMA SLICK!

I cannot wait to get to the Dr. Tuesday & check out this scene.
I'm tired of laying around like dead wood.

I AM SO THANKFUL for our church family
who brings meals & someone even came today just to take the kids out on a walk and to play-WHAT A BLESSING!
